Posted: Updated:

CHATTANOOGA (WRCB) - Police have identified the woman killed late Tuesday at an apartment on Woodlandview Circle.

Investigators say 42-year-old Victoria Godwin died after they say 49-year-old Michael Crumpton choked and beat her.

Investigators say Crumpton and Godwin argued over grease spilled while cooking. Police say Crumpton began choking and punching the woman and that the woman died as a result of those injuries. A medical examiner will determine the exact cause of death.

Officers say Crumpton and his wife were visiting Godwin when the argument began but had stayed with her briefly last month.

Crumpton is charged with criminal homicide. Police say they will release the name of the victim once the family of the victim has been notified.
